Latest News: Healey brows out

3rd Oct 2015

Denis Healey, former British Labour politician, has bowed out to give DeathList 2015 its eleventh success. Healey served under Harold Wilson and James Callaghan as Chancellor of the Exchequer from 1974 until 1979 and was deputy leader of the Labour Party from 1980 until 1983. Despite his political achievements, Healey may be best remembered for his extraordinarily bushy eyebrows. Healey was 98 years old when he died and was making his sixth appearance on DeathList, this year making eighth position.

The DeathList 2015

The DeathList committee has once again called upon numerous sources of information to compile its list of 50 celebrities that it considers most likely to die in 2015. A quick recap on the DeathList rules: Candidates must be famous enough such that their death is expected to be reported by the UK media; Candidates cannot be famous solely for the fact they are likely to die in the near future and only half of the candidates can have appeared on the previous year’s list. DeathList 2014 ended with a disappointing total of 10 successes so we will be looking for DeathList 2015 to show some better form.
